Welcome to Cawthorne Methodist Church

A Church for all people



Introduction to the Methodist Church

"The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of Gods love in Christ and to live out its discipleship through worship, learning and caring, service and evangelism"

Philip Bee (Superintendant) bio picture3

Minister Rev. Dr. Philip Bee

(Also Superintendent Minister for Denby Dale & Clayton West Circuit)
"Coming back into circuit ministry has been good for me, after several happy years at the Churches Regional Commission for Yorkshire and the Humber working closely with the region’s senior church leaders on matters related to politics, society and economics. Cawthorne is only one of five churches for which I have pastoral oversight, so it is not always easy to be part of village life in the way I would like, but I have been well received and feel I am a welcome part of your community. Thank you".
